because the turks have been very upset with the u.s. policy toward iran. they see it as too confrontational. the problem is that the americans are not in an advice- taking mode. actually we're not very good at taking advice in general. we're actually used to giving advice. the idea that we should have partners in the middle east who have other ideas about how to approach the crises there. we should maybe adjust our policies according to what our friends in the neighborhood suggest. it's something we're just not ready for. and so senator kerry on the broadcast here recently said to me, you know, turkey speaks to and has resonance with the arab street today, number one. number two, they're in a contest for leadership in the arab world. >> you're absolutely right. i wouldn't say just the arab world but the whole middle east. turkey is now able to play a role that no other country can play. how did turkey get to this position? because it's only been ten years that turkey has been really active in the world. before that turkey was just the loyal faithful foot soldier of the u.s.

might remember hearing a lot about the marja operation in mid-february. intense combat lead by u.s. marines and british troops and afghan forces to be followed by what general mcchrystal called a government in a box. rolling out governance after the combat. government in a box hasn't worked out that way. it hasn't stood out by any means. security isn't established, and people siding with the afghan government there have been threatened and targeted up to and including assassination. kandahar has been portrayed in the press as the twin operation to marha. twin but bigger. the line i raerd is since marja isn't a success, at least yet, maybe ever, the same type of operation in kandahar has been delayed. that's what it seemed like at home, at least to me before i got here. here it does not seem like that. here it's clear that kandahar isn't delayed. it's well under way. they're not blowing things up in kandahar. they're doing things like opening police stations. let me show you some of that instead of trying to explain it. we flew in a blackhawk helicopter with general hodges to a base

in europe, you see more value there than in investing in any u.s. companies? >> i think so. it is not to discount the united states. the united states should grow faster than europe. it is just which the values and the prices have been discounted so substantially in europe because of the problems with their banks and the potential bailouts of greece and so on, that value is presenting itself. >> susie: now, it's interesting, even though today we had a big rally, and the stock market hasn't been like this in the last couple of weeks, and investors have been so worried, pouring their money into bond funds and into u.s. treasuries, and you see the best days of bond investing are over. how long can investors count on decent returns from bonds? >> i think the best days are over. and that means, simply, the days of price appreciation in terms of bonds added to the yield, which in many cases produced double-digit types of years are over, but it doesn't mean that bonds will go down in price and that 3% to 4% to 5% yields available to investors through pimco funds and others aren't

different subsidies that the u.s. government gives including refunds for drilling costs and refunds for searching for oil. subsidies make up 88% of all federal subsidies, just cutting the oil and gass subsidies out would save the u.s. government $45 billion every year. from the outrageous to the absurd, it proved today that during the 1970s bp put its name on a board game called offshore oil strike about the thrills of drilling. rediscovered by the uk metro newspaper, the game clearly never rivalled monopoly, but the parallels between it and the current disaster nothing if not eerie. the rules are this according to boardgamegeek.com. two to four players compete in the north sea exploring for oil, building platforms and laying pipelines to bring offshore oil back to the player's home company. first player to make 120 million wins, but they have to avoid dreaded hazard cards which read blow out, rig damaged, oil slick clean upcost, pay $1 million. how quaint. time to call in oil and gas industry veteran bob cavnar. thanks for your time again tonight. >> good evening, keith. thanks hav

the u.s. citizens as well as legal immigrants. >> greta: here's why i hate it. there are better ways to deal with illegal immigration than this. cut often air conditioning of someone who is elderly and the person dies from dehydration and the heat. and it gets hot in arizona. what about the family trying to cook a meal for the infant, whatever it is. we don't have to go to this point to get in . we to get our government to act. for the life of me, i can't imagine cutting utilities that's how you live. >> greta, first of all, let me define, address the illegal population not just border crossers from mexico or canada, it includes visa over-stayers whether for work, tourists, education. they are considered illegals as well. the point is, we have to have a reasonable period upon which giving the illegal immigrants fair notice, fair opportunity upon which they can take care of their families and there would be no health repercussions. >> greta: to me it is flat out cruel and i think there are more effective ways. i hope your proposal fails. i urge you to join some of your other colleague
of an exchange for the people detained in the u.s. by -- for people that have been convicted of spying for the u.s. in russia. an old-fashioned cold war spy swap, if you will. we use that term spy, even though the russian agents haven't actually been charged with spying. there is discussion of it. we have been told by government officials that there are preliminary discussions underway. but nothing's going to happen very quickly if it happens at all. the brother of one of the russians who was convicted in 2004 in russia of spying for the u.s., his brother has told a news conference in russia that his brother was told that tex change could happen any day now, that as early as thursday he might be on his way to vienna and ultimately to the united states. but we're told that there are lots of complicated details to work out here, andrea. >> although they might do something where they would release the russian spy and release him first before any action on our end because they don't want to make it that obvious that it's a quid pro q o quo. so sometimes these cases are staggered a little bit. >> based
